Highway report:  Supervisor Kinsley stated the roads are slippery,
weíve been sanding, Dave Martin moved the dozer out to Connors Lake
where heíll be doing a small project for the State.  

Unfinished Business:  Supervisor Kinsley explained the request from
Darwin Hintz that the town look into an ATV access route similar to
what snowmobiles have.  Upon discussion with the Towns Association, we
were advised that the Town has no statutory authority to provide this;
it is only an option for snowmobiles at this time.  Under Warden
Heizlers advice, property owners on Larson Road have requested Larson
Road be opened for ATV use.  Not as a trail or a route, just for ATV
use.  Supervisor Kinsley asked if anyone had any questions or
comments, there were none, a motion was made by Supervisor Kinsley to
open Larson Road for ATV use, second by Helen Dennis, motion carried. 
Signs will need to be placed on each end of Larson road.

New Business:  Steve Schultz has moved out of our area and we need to
appoint another person to the comprehensive planning board.  Gerald
Passow has expressed interest in the position. Supervisor Kinsley
asked Gerald if he had any questions, he had none, Supervisor Kinsley
motioned to appoint Gerald Passow to the comprehensive planning board,
second by Helen Dennis, motion carried.  It was not clear if the Town
Board or the Comprehensive Planning board members are to appoint their
chair person, we will look into this further.

Correspondence / Contacts:  Supervisor Kinsley stated, he understood
the Mr. Bill Voight has invited Lori Smith, Sawyer County Ambulance
director to our meeting.  Mr. Voight was asked to introduce her. 
Supervisor Dennis asked Mr. Voight if he would like to begin the
questions since he had expressed several questions and concerns in our
office yesterday.  Mr. Voight did begin; he asked Lori if Sawyer
County Ambulances are being used for transfers from Rusk County
Hospital to Eau Claire?  Lori replied yes they are.  He then asked if
there is always a primary ambulance on call.  Lori replied there are 7
ambulances county wide and they always reposition their ambulances so
the entire county is still covered.  She went on to explain that these
transfers help us to pay for our 911 system which is not a money
making system and some of the transfers are for Sawyer County
residents.  She explained that we may get you to Rusk County Hospital,
but you may need more advanced care than what can be offered at Rusk
County therefore, we continue with a transfer to get the people where
they can get the care they need.  Supervisor Kinsley expressed that it
was explained to him that we no longer provide an ambulance from our
Winter location, Lori stated that is not true, there is still an
ambulance here and it is manned when she has the personnel to run it,
she stated there continues to be a lack of staff in the Winter area
and she has to provide these units where she has the people to operate
them, they do not run themselves.   She said they are on a trial basis
taking these ambulances to the areas where they have the staff
available to provide a better response.  Lengthy discussion continued,
several comments and suggestions were voiced with ideas on how to
improve on the ambulance services and improve the number of EMTs. 
County Supervisor Warren Johnson explained that the ambulance service
is not a money maker, itís a service and we are trying to improve on
this service in all ways, but it is a work in progress.  Warren also
stated this is not a Town of Winter problem, itís a County problem and
we need to address these issues with the county.  Helen Dennis stated
that all we are asking is that we are informed so when the public asks
questions, we can provide them the correct answers.  Lori Smith stated
that she promises us that her number one concern is to get well
qualified people to your emergency as quickly as possible.   

Supervisor Kinsley thanked Lori Smith for coming to our meeting; she
stated she would be happy to answer any other questions after the
meeting if needed.
